Even as the understanding and prevalence of the Cloud continues to escalate and as companies continue to migrate data and services to the Cloud, counsel for many companies are still attempting to review contacts for cloud services as if they were software contracts or fail to understand and appreciate issues regarding security, performance, availability, disaster recovery and business continuity. In addition, many fail to properly appreciate the implementation process or the effort involved to move to another vendor and thus, fail to consider the costs of signing on and how it may lock the company in with the vendor as switching vendors may be cost prohibitive. Join Matt Karlyn and Aaron Tantleff of Foley & Lardner LLP as they discuss some of the more significant issues that arise during negotiations with cloud providers and how to effectively negotiate terms and mitigate risks.

Matthew A. Karlyn, Esq. is a partner with Foley & Lardner LLP, where he is a member of its Information Technology & Outsourcing practice group and its Privacy, Security and Information Management practice group.

In addition to his law degree, Mr. Karlyn has a MBA from the University of Chicago, and he has been selected for inclusion in the 2012 Massachusetts Super Lawyers Rising Stars list, an honor given to the top 2.5% of Massachusetts lawyers under the age of 40.
